The companies and teams we invest in all have a common ambition : transform the current leisure and local distribution industries through innovation.
Patrick Dalsace, Marcos Alves, Denis Fayolle, and Bertrand Jelensperger founded LaFourchette in 2007. Within the following 3 years, it has become the leading online booking platform and management software provider for restaurants in France and Spain.
The company provides an online and mobile service to internet users to find, select and book restaurants with discounts (50% off).
A pioneer in Europe, LaFourchette is today a leader of restaurant bookings with around 4 millions seated diners to date and over 600 promotions offered on the website every day.
LaFourchette has also developped a strong relationship with its restaurant partners as it provides them with an integrated SaaS. This software helps restaurants maximise bookings by providing them with an effective and flexible discount tool, secure online bookings, compile customer records, store data, utilize social networking and ultimately reach their customers in a far more personalized manner.
Currently, LaFourchette has more than 10 000 restaurant partners (French star chefs, restaurant chains, independent restaurants…).
LaFourchette is leader in Spain under the brand El Tenedor.
In 2011, LaFourchette generates in excess of 100 million euros revenues for its restaurant partners.
